It’s a big honor for a local health plan! CDPHP has been rated the #1 health insurance company in the country for its efforts to engage consumers in wellness activities. That’s according to the EveryMove 100 Health Insurance Index, which rates plans based on accessibility of information and support, and the impact of community involvement activities.
The EveryMove 100 is a list of the top 100 health insurance companies that are making significant strides in engaging with consumers to help them take better control of their health. The index was designed to help consumers make the most informed decisions as they enter into state-based marketplaces, as mandated by the Affordable Care Act.
“CDPHP understands that consumers are more likely to make better health care choices when they have the right tools and information,” said Dr. John D. Bennett, president and CEO, CDPHP. “Putting our members in the driver’s seat empowers them to make informed decisions. We’re proud and honored to be acknowledged for our efforts.”
“I am delighted to see that CDPHP is at the top of the list for the The EveryMove 100 Health Insurance Index,” said Nirav R. Shah, MD, MPH, the commissioner of health for New York State. “CDPHP has demonstrated over and over again its strong commitment to empowering individuals to improve their health by taking preventive measures and making smart lifestyle choices. I want to congratulate John Bennett and his team at CDPHP for this well-deserved national recognition.”
